**please keep in mind, that anyinformation sent is subject to change, in real time, with any traffic or weather conditions**

Step 2: text " @woobus " in the body of the message

Step 3: This will enroll you.

Delays will go out at 7:00 PM for next day AM routes and 2:!5PM for same day PM routes.

Adding your student to a bus

Our office is working dilegently to update our routing system, Transfinder, with routes and rosters. However, while we are in process of updating we ask that you call us with any changes to your student's busing information.

The information we will need is
- Child's Name
- School
- Grade
- Parent's Name
- Parent's best contact number
- Desired start date

*Please allow 2 school days to be updated. Once your student is added to the route, our office will contact you with busing information*

 

Same Day Changes

Due to the safety or our students we will not accept same day busing changes unless it is an extreme emergency case. Only our Transporation Supervisors will be able to approve these changes.

Temporary Busing Changes

We will accept temporary busing changes, however, we will need a notice of 2 school days.

 

*Parents/Gaurdians are responsible to communicate ALL changes to your student's transportaion needs to your student's school*

 

Completeing Final Forms transporation information

 
Have the following information decided prior to completing your Final Forms for the school year:
  1. Your child needs bused to or from an address other than your actual home address.
  2. Sitters often change, therefore, all sitter information is deleted from prior year.
  3. Your child did not ride every day last year, to and from the home address.
  4. Your child will be attending a before or after school program.
  5. You have moved or will be moving prior to the start of school.
  6. Your child will not attend the same school this year.
  7. Your child attends the Career Center, Liberty Prep or LEAP.
Busing information will also be posted at each of our school buildings.
 
Pre-school students and those who require specialized transportation will be contacted with their busing information. 
 
Please make sure we have your current phone number.  If you have a cell phone, please make sure your voice mailbox is set up and is able to receive messages.
